I have been looking for Clipper teas for a long time now. This one instantly caught my eye when I saw it at the supermarket. It was a little pricey but I am sure quality has its price- No cheap product has ever been amazing.
So, I bought it and took it home with me.
It had been a long day of work and this tea is specially for those days. I love almost all chai varieties and this was no exception. It smelled incredible and do not get me started on the taste! I cannot say it was a whole new experience, but it was certainly something. Not as intense as other chai teas I have tasted. Instead of the spices staying in your mouth, this one had a rather sweet aftertaste, very uncommon, in my opinion. However, it was soothing enough to send me to a good night sleep.
I am definetely a chai lover.
Flavors: Cardamon, Ginger
As I’m walking back from meeting up with OMGsrsly tonight for a quickie tea swap in the middle of Granville Street, what I can only call an “energy bolt of thought” hit me. “Go get Detox tonight,” it said. I knew it meant this tea.
I promptly finished what I was doing, headed over to the store, and grabbed this. I’ve brewed it, and… well…. I knew hibiscus was #1 in there, so it shouldn’t surprise me it’s blood red, right? Well, it does. It’s a bit stunning and unsettling.
Still, I’m drinking it. It’s not as odd as I’d think it should/would be (normally I stay away from hibiscus). Pleasant if oddly sweet (aloe vera, maybe?) Dunno. If it helps me get out of my body whatever I ingested today though that I can feel like a lump moving through me? I’m thrilled.
Flavors: Herbs, Raspberry, Sweet
Via MissB and probably Sil. Thank you!
There is licorice in this. Sigh. A lot of these herbal teas have licorice. Thankfully it is just a strong dislike and not something I shouldn’t be drinking.
Smells strongly of lemon and ginger. Both lemon peel and juice, which is nice. And more strongly of lemon than ginger. I added some honey to offset any potential sickly flavours from the licorice.
Hmm. It’s not bad but whoa the licorice sweetness is out of this world. I’d prefer if it were just the lemony and gingery flavours.
Oh well. Thanks so much for letting me try this one! I always hope that they’ll work, and sometimes they do.
This is my favourite peppermint tea. I absolutely love it. I have yet to find a peppermint infusion that is anywhere near this. However, it is a bit tricky to brew. I didn’t quite like it in the beginning, but then I realized I had been brewing it wrong. I often leave the tea in the cup until I have drunk it all up, but this tecnique does not do with this infusion. In my opinion, you mustn’t leave the bag in for too long. You should also drink the tea as soon as it’s not burning your tongue. I actually don’t like the taste at all if it has cooled for too long. But when I manage to brew it “correctly”, it’s pure magic. I love it.

I’ve more or less given up on bagged herbal teas like this, because typically they smell a lot nicer than they taste. This one smells divine, too – very appley, like a fresh baked apple pie. I wasn’t expecting much from the flavour, but it’s actually pretty good. I can taste apple, and it’s a nice, fresh, crisp, “green” tasting apple – not too sweet, and not too tart, with just the tiniest hint of sharpness. The ginger is definitely second fiddle, but it provides a pleasantly warming background and just a touch of sweetness, with a mild gingery tang. It’s a really good pairing, and it’s really putting me in mind of apple pie! It’s just perfect for sipping on an autumnal afternoon, and it’s nice to see something other than the usual pairing of lemon and ginger, too – it’s just a little unusual. A definite winner with me!
I am a sucker for relaxing, night-time teas. Tea has the wonderful ability to energize us, as well as calm as right back down! I had been on the lookout for a lavender-night-time tea for a while now and when I saw this on sale at Target I had to give it a try. This tea gives off a wonderful lavender aroma but is pleasanty balanced by the hint of chamomile. Very good balance of flavor – was worried it would be like an overpowering aromatherapy candle but it’s absolutely perfect. My new favorite tea to accompany a book before bed!
This was unexpectedly bitter. First time I made it I steeped it at four minutes, this time around, three minutes and it’s still rather strong. Don’t know if the bitterness comes from the bergamot flavouring oils or just the tea itself.
I picked it up because I like supporting local/Canadian companies, and as a bonus it was also being sold at a local independent home/kitchen accessories store.
I might just have to play around with steeping a bit more.
To be honest I mainly bought this for its badass dragon box. I also enjoy white tea and can not usually find many blends with raspberry in them. I find the flavour to be more raspberry than white tea and the raspberry tastes a little synthetic but overall its quite lovely. Additionally, I don’t like that this doesn’t have a string on the tea bag. Petty, I know. The box also says to use boiling water which is entirely incorrect. White tea is far to delicate to be used in 100 degree water. I suggest using 80 degrees so ensure you don’t get any bitter, nasty flavours.
This is better than some other cheap white tea teabags, and probably quite ok for the price, but has none of the flavour of a decent white tea. In it’s favour it can be steeped for a good while before becoming bitter which is rare with cheap whites, what little taste it does have isn’t unpleasant, and for the price you can’t expect much. But if you want decent white tea with real sweetness and subtlety look elsewhere.
I’m currently mired in the second worst bout of flu I’ve ever had in my life. It’s awful, and it’s not going anywhere with anything resembling speed. This means that, other than Lemsip, I’m just drinking bog-standard Clipper Organic Everyday. I can’t taste, and wouldn’t enjoy, anything else right now, but this is plain, strong, straightforward stuff (and great with milk). While it’s not what I’d normally choose, it’s being my friend while I’m ill.
Hopefully I’ll be back to normal soon sigh
Got this yesterday as part of my present from my aunt. I really like chai teas and it’s probably only tea that I drink with milk. First time I steeped this only 3mins but it wasn’t strong enough so this time 5mins.
Clippers teas might be only bagged tea mark that I like, also their ideology and using fair trade and organic is the best. This tea is actually quite spicy, which I like since if it’s too mild it doesn’t fit with milk. I need milk with my chai, it gives some body and sweetness to it. Good substitute for glogg, and suits with winter and christmas.
Mmmm. This tea is often in my cupboard, so I don’t usually bother to take it out, although I thought I should for my sipdown challenge.
This is hands-down my favourite traditional Earl Grey. It is a staple in my house and the houses of extended family members (it now strongly reminds me of Frank’s family every time I drink it, as they have it more often than unflavoured black tea). Clipper is one of the better brands of teabags usually found in British supermarkets, and I prefer to buy these when we run out of EG when I can afford it. The bergamot is very strong, as is the base tea, which is good for me as I love strong teas. The citrus-y bergamot has a lingering almost orange note, which adds a lovely extra dimension. I wish we had some of these in at the moment – writing up this note is giving me cravings!

Brewed infusion has a juicy aroma with sweetness.
Hibiscus is overpowering and drowns out sweet fruity flavour. Underneath the hibiscus, there is a good mix of punchy berry favour. Overall sour because of the hibiscus.
